Mod Announcement: Character OU/AU Slots, Canon Cap, EDIT for Puella Magi and Persona casts

Hello, Animus! We are bringing you a couple of changes!

Starting next application cycle, we will be allowing three slots per character--that is one OU and two AU versions per individual character. This will be handled basically identically to how we handle the two versions we allow now, so we don't really have to say more than that. All the rules about apping AUs and OUs still apply to these.

However, because this has the potential to really inflate some of our casts, we have instated a canon cap. The cap has been set at thirty characters per canon. This is easy to check: just go to the taken list and you'll see the current number of characters in each canon underneath the canon's name.

Reservations will be capped similarly: we will not allow more reservations than there are slots for those reservations. Speaking of these, reservations will have the first shot at open slots: if there are two open slots and we get three applications, the last of which was reserved, then that reserved character will get one of the available slots provided it's accepted. This only applies before reservations expire; that is, you have to have your application submitted before the third of the month. After reservations are taken care of/after they all expire, slots will be handled on a first come, first serve basis. In the event of a character being asked for revisions, we will wait three days for the revisions to come in before filling the slot with another character.

Now, where does this leave your cast? For most of you, you're fine--there are only three casts approaching this cap. However, if you are in the Persona, Homestuck, and/or Fate/ casts, this may apply to your cast quickly. Currently (note this does not count new characters who have not been added to the taken list yet) Homestuck and Persona have 24 characters and Fate/ has 21; this puts these casts within reach of the limit. Please be aware of this when enabling and applying into these casts, thank you!

EDIT: Persona and Puella Magi players, your canons have been consolidated. What does this mean? This means that Puella Magi Madoka Magica and Puella Magi Kazumi Magica canons are now one thing: Puella Magi. Persona cast, this means Persona 1, Persona 2, Persona 3, and Persona 4 are are now all under the Persona Series cast. No tags have been changed. This means your casts have a higher number of characters toward the cap--Puella Magi has 10 cast members while Persona has 24--and it also means you fall under the rules about casts. You cannot app more than two characters from the same cast. If you are already playing more than two characters you may keep all of your characters. You will be grandfathered in; it wouldn't be fair to you guys to take them away. What this does mean is that if you drop them you will not be able to pick them back up again until you are playing fewer than two Persona characters.
